The Work of Peter Taylor

October 29, 2012

Peter Taylor is a painter and illustrator from Vancouver, Canada, known for his plump, tattooed forms in yoga-like positions. With a background in graffiti, Taylor has continued to work in large scale. His technique with acrylic airbrush is very similar to that of spraypaint, and the large scale allows him to retain many of his approaches to paint handling and layout, but to increase the level of detail to a large degree. Applied to the relatively simplistic and repeating character shapes, Taylor’s paintings evoke a sense of balance and complexity, contemplation and playfulness. (from Ayden Gallery)
